A team led by Dr. Peter Zimmermann and Dr. Marc Scheunemann, both Partners at Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek in Düsseldorf, legally advised Art-Invest on the acquisition of the “Urban Village” residential project in Dresden. Sold by Dresdner Wohnbau, the transaction was structured as a forward deal and is intended for a special housing fund. The acquisition was brokered by Ideal Wohnen GmbH & Co.

Featuring a modern energy concept, the “Urban Village” is being built in accordance with the KfW 55 energy efficiency standard. Construction started in January 2020. The project is scheduled for completion by the end of 2021, leases of the residential units will start around mid-2021.
